A thief drove away with a lorry parked near a supermarket at Assyakirin commercial center (or Medan Raya) yesterday.
It was loaded with tons foodstuff – boxes of maggie mee, tin chocolate and other groceries – basically enough to sustain a typical household for months.
The distraught lorry owner quickly lodged a police report of the missing lorry and at the same time requested help from social media users, frantically urging people to quickly called them for information on the lorry whereabout.
Well, to his relieved, the lorry was later found. Even more surprising was the fact that its cargo was largely untouched except for two boxes of maggie mee.
The lorry was found at Nyigu road.
On the same day, he also stole a pick-up truck at Kampung Baru.
Supt. Zailanni told Harian Metro, three shots were fired at the fleeing pick-up truck near Kidurong traffic light forcing the the suspect to lost control of the vehicle before it went to a halt.
The suspect was an auto mechanic at a workshop in Bintulu was immediately arrested.
We had read the news of the proposed bridge linking Kampung Jepak to Bintulu town center since Tun Taib was still the Chief Minister few years ago.
Then, we were told a railway would also be built to link Tanjong Manis to Bintulu as part of the SCORE development plans for the coastal regions.
Perhaps, the railway part is nothing more than a paper proposal, but the bridge linking Jepak to Bintulu town center probably will be materialized.
Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari announced RM250 million allocation for the new bridge after the chairing Bintulu Development Authority’s board meeting yesterday, according to BDA General Manager Pn Rodziah Morshidi.
However, we will have to wait for State Planning Unit and Public Works Department to divulge details of the proposed bridge.
The RM250 million allocation is from State coffer.
